The Day of Death by Bono Adrenaline Shock by That Fucking Tank

10/10 Steven 16th August 2013

The first proper album by Leeds’ That Fucking Tank is a conglomeration of ideas and the sheer fun of making music. Everything about this record breathes DIY mentality and spits it out again, straight in your face. When this record was released in 2006 by Jealous Records I honestly haven’t heard anything like it before. Andy and James are rocking their way through 14 pieces of such high diversity and yet density that make it hard to believe that only two people are involved in playing these tunes. Listening through the entire record you are fully served with everything you could wish for from instrumental noise rock: heavy riffs, jazzy playfulness, surprising breaks, appropriate amounts of silence and even a guy unexpectedly singing about the sea being beer and him wanting to be dolphin for a minute or two.

Now, in 2013, That Fucking Tank are celebrating their ten year anniversary and it doesn’t come as a surprise that the two musicians have been friends since their childhood and started playing together such a long time ago. The Day of Death delivers a clear image of an absolute understanding between the band members that turn their musical vision into an unrestrained piece of brilliance that you can listen to over and over again and always figure out something you haven’t recognised before and realise how what may first seem to be a muddle of guitars and feedback and drums turns into the shape of forward-thinking, modern Noise Rock. You can dance, you can think and you can laugh while listening to this record. But whatever you end up doing it will cause pure bliss and you’re going to want more of it.
